Of course, while this is not strictly about calisthenics, the way he explains shocking the muscles can definitely be used in calisthenics. What he describes is essentially "drop sets", where you perform an exercise that is difficult for you personally for reps then drop to a less difficult one for reps. You could drop multiple times as a method of muscle exhaustion. As some old timers would say, the first few reps are for strength and the last few for size.
